The Crow lab at Purdue, made possible by the EVPRP grant, has allowed our five new Crow interns to interact in a physically productive and inviting space. We’ve been quite busy at Crow, especially considering the wide range of projects that all of us contribute to. Here’s an outline of what we’ve been working on, and how the lab helps us do so.

We launched CIABATTA, Corpus In A Box: Automated Tools, Tutorials, & Advising, on December 6th, 2021. Attendees from all over the world learned how they can build their own corpora to aid them in research and teaching, regardless of their previous coding experience.

The Crow team is thrilled to announce the release of Corpus in a Box: Automated Tools, Tutorials, & Advising (CIABATTA). We invite you to attend our launch event and open house: Mon Dec 6, 10am; Tue Dec 7, 8am (US/Arizona time).

The web interface for Crow, the corpus and repository of writing, depends on a complex amalgam of interdependent bits of code built by thousands of people. Crow developer Mark Fullmer describes these interactions and a tool he’s developed to visualize them.

Crow researchers recently added 1,547 files to our corpus, using new tools developed by Adriana Picoral with assistance from both Arizona and Purdue team members.

Halfway through our workshop series, we stop to reflect on the workshop so far and look ahead to project milestones and goal-setting.

Reflecting on the second session of our Methodology Workshop for Natural Language Programming, where we learned nine principles for thinking like a programmer.

Kicking off our Methodology Workshop for Natural Language Programming, an intensive workshop designed to help all Crow researchers contribute to Crow research involving data processing and analysis, back-end development, and interface design.
